I spoke to Robin Hough at the Guardian about WordPress and Automattic’s mission to democratize publishing.
Rachael Chong has an article on Fast Company Co.exist that includes my thoughts on giving, charity, and impact in the world.
Business Insider has a fun article on Automattic’s Awesome Remote Work Culture. Includes some quotes from me about how we work, including “Rather than being anti-office, we’re more location agnostic” and the top five meetup locations so far (Lisbon, Portugal; Kauai; San Francisco; Amsterdam; Tybee Island, Georgia).
I was interviewed by Fast Company on How To Have A Virtual Meeting, which they turned into a neat article.
Was excited to be named to Forbes 30 Under 30 representing the Media category, alongside some interesting characters from Wiz Khalifa to Hugh Evans. They also did a fun photo shoot with Walter Smith, who also has a WordPress blog, and styled by Joseph De Acetis which you can see a bit of to the right. Check out the entire list to learn about some of the most interesting folks moving and shaking right now.
Last week in Paris I had a twenty minute chat with Om that covered WordPress, Automattic, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and the freedom of the web.
I had an amazing weekend at WordCamp San Francisco hanging out with hundreds of WordPress users from all over the world at the main event and the dev day afterward. Then on Sunday I was humbled to be featured on the cover of my hometown paper the Houston Chronicle in an article David Kaplan wrote following the 10-year high school reunion I went to (PDF).
It was a pleasure meeting so many of you, and I hope it’s not next year before we meet again. Thank you to Michael Pick and Pete Davies for helping me out under tight timelines again.
